The Daring And The Doomed. . .
It's the last chance for Jacob Gamble, Rough Rider, outlaw and man of a few principles. Nearing 50 and flat broke, Jacob bends his own rule about robbing trains. But by the time he reaches the payroll safe on a Rock Island train, he finds another thief there first with a bullet in his head. Jacob is caught holding the bag--and turned into hero. A broke hero.
In A Place Called Damnation Road. . .
Shackled by unwanted fame, running from a life gone wrong, and raising the suspicions of a Pinkerton detective, Jacob listens to a woman: beautiful and tattooed by the Indians who seized her as a child. Olivia Weathers knows of a treasure hidden in a cave along the Jornada del Muerto--a merciless hundred mile stretch of hell on earth guarded by Apache warriors. Now, Jacob will follow Olivia into the most savage and deadly territory in the southwest--where few ever come out of Canyon Diablo alive.
"Max McCoy is a masterful storyteller. A force of fascinating characters and unexpected plot twists create a can't-put-it-down story." --Cotton Smith, author of Spirit Rider
